Chevy Sequel Drives Into History Books

May 17, 2007

General Motors Corp. recently made history as its Chevy Sequel became the first electrically-driven fuel cell vehicle to run 300 miles on one tank of hydrogen, in and out of traffic on public roads, while producing zero emissions, the company reports. The Sequel was introduced in 2005 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and the first drivable version appeared last fall. It integrates a hydrogen fuel cell propulsion system with a broad menu of advanced technologies, such as steer- and brake-by-wire controls, wheel hub motors, lithium-ion batteries and a lightweight aluminum structure. It uses clean, renewable hydrogen as a fuel and emits only water vapor.The 300-mile drive through the state of New York began at General Motors' Fuel Cell Activity Center in Honeoye Falls.The Sequel achieved the 300-mile mark in Tarrytown - a fitting location, as General Motors reiterated its commitment to bringing part of its next fleet of over 100 Chevrolet Equinox fuel cell vehicles under the "Project Driveway" demonstration program to the greater NY metropolitan area this fall.For more information, visit www.gm.com.
